Even though we did not plan on leaving HS we decided to hop on a boat to Epcot. It was great to have that freedom.
We love park hoppers. It allows us to be flexible and spontaneous!

With that said, we didn't get them for this trip because the hours are shorter than when we're normally there, we're going to MVMCP and we are only there for 4 days. I can always add them if we change our mind

Us either. A full day at most. For a 5+ day trip, we might do two half days - one am, one pm. Or just go in the morning and stay until we're done, then hop

Soooo, I made one in Photoshop by combining the hi-res graphic that Disney gave out and information provided by talented and dedicated DISboarder Robo who has been keeping up on attraction locations on a sattelite map. Here is a board-friendly version:

And here is a link to the big version CLICK HERE

Enjoy!
Thank you!

Btw - this is our absolute fav show. When we're not watching TV we just have it on in the background (love TBS for that ) "Sheldonisms" are a part of our household

I did not have this listed as PM EMH. This is our La Nouba night anyway and we have 9pm Narcoosee ADR, not sure if we could make it to Epcot but it may be worth a monorail ride to see!

Hey, we'll be at DHS this day too.....but I think we leave right after the 3pm parade so it's not really a full day for us. I hope we can get all of DHS in during our time there......I guess that's why having a park hopper will come in handy.....

We'll be at Epcot for a Via Napoli ADR at 11:30am. I like the idea of drinking around the World....but we are tentatively planning on heading to ESPN and catching some of the sunday football games......but do I really want to waste precious WDW time watching football? Hm...will have to think about this.

Then, monorail hop for a bit to see holiday decorations before heading back to California Grill for fireworks, or heading to the Polynesian beach (depending on the weather). After that, depending on how tired we are, head to the Boardwalk to check out Jellyrolls.

Tues, Dec 18. Magic Kingdom. Breakfast at Crystal Palace at 8:10AM. Dinner at 'Ohana at 4:45PM. MVMCP at night.

Wed, Dec 19. Magic Kingdom. Breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table at 8:05AM. Dinner at Be Our Guest at 6:30PM. Parade and fireworks at night.

Thurs, Dec 20. Hollywood Studios. Seas Aqua Tour at EPCOT (meets at Epcot main gate at 12:00PM - tour doesn't require park admission). Fantasmic at night. Dinner at Sci-Fi Dine-In at 8:20PM.

Fri, Dec 21. Epcot in the AM. Lunch at Via Napoli at 11:30AM before heading to the resort to catch DME back to the airport.
It doesn't look like you will really NEED a park hopper but like others have said....you can always add it on later if you feel you need it.

I hadn't thought about that. You are right. I don't think I'll be able to leave my dSLR home, though. It's rather attached to my eye-hole.

My thoughts exactly, though I would loooove to shoot at WDW. I know! A solo trip for mom just to take pictures!

Go to the post you wanna quote and hit 'quote' button in bottom right corner. If you wanna multi-quite hit the button next to it on each post you want then hit 'post reply' button - the window will open with all the quotes in it.

Did I make sense, I have to ask, because I know I sometimes speak my own language

I think one of my favorite things about taking solo trips is taking the time to take pictures of everything. My trip in Feb I took 400-700 pictures per day on a 8.5 day trip.


And I'm late to the conversation, but I have never used park hoppers and have never wished I did. I think they are a waste of time and money. The time you spend travelling park to park you could do several rides instead. JMHO though.
